If you really want to be honest, I think we've all asked ourselves about the current whereabouts of characters from various '80s hair metal power ballads. Jesse Malin
is no different than you and I.
This morning he posits the question to all of us: Sister Christian, where are you now? Night Ranger
never sounded like this (although the 'Mats did). This is a b-side off Malin's new Broken Radio single
(UK), and has that same anthemic rock and roll sound as the rest of the excellent Glitter In The Gutter
album. Aside from some incongruous time-shifting in his lyrics here (he is alternately born in 1973, 1984, 1968, 1932) he also manages a few vivid couplets like, "foolin' around in the dark / back from college with carnal knowledge
" and talks a lot about rocking - keep on moving, keep on grooving.
The first anthem of my summer.
